Cynthia’s focus came early – during law school, she worked as a legal secretary and paralegal for several midsize and large firms in Southern California. Electing not to pursue a career as an attorney, Cynthia recognized her interest and talent in law firm management.
After law school, she worked as Office Manager for midsize law firms in Northern and Southern California where she was responsible for all aspects of the firm’ s daily operations. From human resource management and the development of the firms’ policy and procedure/employee handbooks, to the growth office relocation and build out, Cynthia worked unselfishly with pride and dedication leading that firm to great successes.
In 2003, Cynthia decided to take her work experience and a new certification in Law Firm Management, together with her entrepreneurial spirit and determination to assist other small firms and companies grow and obtain strategic goals, and founded PLMC & Associates.
